About the Journal

Infancy, the official journal of the International Congress on Infant Studies, emphasizes the highest quality original research on normal and aberrant infant development during the first two years. Both human and animal research are included. In addition to regular length research articles and brief reports (3000-word maximum), the journal includes solicited target articles along with a series of commentaries; debates, in which different theoretical positions are presented along with a series of commentaries; and thematic collections, a group of three to five reports or summaries of research on the same issue, conducted independently at different laboratories, with invited commentaries.

Associate Editors

Alejandrina Cristia

Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique

Alejandrina Cristia is a senior researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), leader of the Language Acquisition Across Cultures team, at the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique (LSCP) cohosted by the Ecole Normale Supérieure, EHESS, and PSL. Her long-term aim is to shed light on the child language development,  both descriptively and mechanistically. To this end, her team draws methods and insights from linguistics, psychology, anthropology, economics, and speech technology. This interdisciplinary approach has resulted in over 100 publications in international journals and conferences.  With an interest in cumulative, collaborative, and transparent science, she co-founded the first meta-meta-analysis platform ( and several international networks, including DAylong Recordings of Children’s Language Environment (, and the Consortium on Language Variation in Input Environments around the World (LangVIEW), which aims to increase participant and researcher diversity in language development studies. She received the 2017 John S. McDonnell Scholar Award in Understanding Human Cognition, the 2020 Médaille de Bronze CNRS Section Linguistique, and an ERC Consolidator Award (2021-2026) for the [ExELang]( project.

Tilbe Göksun

Koç University

Tilbe Göksun is a Professor of Psychology at Koç University, Turkey and the director of the Language & Cognition Lab ( She received her PhD in Psychology from Temple University in 2010 and held a postdoctoral research position at the University of Pennsylvania between 2010-2013, before joining Koç University. Her primary research involves language-thought interaction across developmental time, early language learning, and multimodal language processing and production in different populations. Her work employs interdisciplinary perspectives, focusing on multi-method and cross-linguistic research with multilevel analyses.


Lisa Scott

University of Florida

Dr. Scott is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Florida.  The overarching goal of her research is to advance understanding of the processes underlying visual attention, perception, and categorization during infancy. Her work examines the importance of experience for learning and how different early experiences lead to different developmental outcomes. She utilizes measures of looking time and visual-fixations using eye-tracking as well as electrophysiological and structural measures of brain development (EEG, MRI).

Eric A. Walle

University of California, Merced

Eric Walle is a professor of developmental psychology in the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of California, Merced. He completed his PhD at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests focus on emotion, social and emotional development, and the impact of developmental transitions (e.g., crawling, walking) on psychological functioning. Professor Walle also serves as an Associate Editor for the journals Emotion Review and Affective Science.
